Whenever my girlfriends wear red lipstick, their boyfriends seem to get so bent out of shape about it. For the longest time, I thought it was because they just didn’t like they way it looked–after all, red lips can very dramatic on some people. But as it turns out, it’s simply because they don’t want to end up with red lipstick all over their face when they kiss you!
If only they knew that there are so many amazing red lipstick formulas that won’t smear or transfer onto their lips! So what’s a red-lip-loving-gal to do? Invest in a great, no-smudge formula and then let a brother know, you’re good to go!
Here are five fantastic formulas to try that won’t end up all over your guy:
TIP: If you already have a lipstick that you love, but you want to make it more smudge-proof, try applying a translucent powder over it to really lock it into place. To do this, place a tissue over your lips and then lightly dust the tissue with your powder brush to soak up any of the excess oil, and then re-apply your lipstick. Also, apply lipliner in a similar color to create a barrier around your lipstick and help keep it from feathering.
